President Barry welcomed Cecil and Elizabeth Aaron to their last meeting as guests, before Chris Dawson’s tossing saw Max Cunnington rewarded with another bottle of red wine, which he promptly declared would not make it through the night!
Membership Director Kenn Williams then formally read the preamble for membership induction and formally presented the world’s newest Rotarian Cecil Aaron to President Barry, and our newest Associate Member Elizabeth Aaron.


Our MC John Kelly and Ann are off to Sydney for the rest of the year so John left a little happiness in the box.  Steve Perry paid up for a birthday (Chris Caithness and Tom Atkinson missed the opportunity afforded by their birthdays, this week), Gordon Dunbar celebrated 18 years in Rotary, and said Clive Pearson’s acrobatics with the club’s BBQ were worth noting with a dollar or two.  Bruce James kept up his 100% attendance even though the make-up at Melville didn’t happen, thanks to Clive witnessing the event.  Kenn Williams was very, very, happy the parking stuff-up at Applecross Primary School got resolved, even though it took all day Monday to get there.  And of course, newest member Cecil Aaron showed how happy he was to become a member of Applecross Rotary.
Rotary Jacaranda Festival Briefing Session - IMPORTANT
JF 19 Festival is on this Saturday 23 November. The volunteer fun starts at 6:00 am. 
There is a briefing for all volunteers at 5:30 pm TONIGHT (21 November), at the Dome Cafe at Deepwater Point. We have our own room; and also easy to get good food/drink  etc.
We  have the use of a Zoom account, so you can also participate via that medium if you cannot attend in person. DETAILS - Meeting ID: 138 430 467   PW: RAY 
For those not involved in the "bump in” process the briefings will end within 30 minutes.
The fourth agenda item (bump in), should only take an additional 15 to 30 minutes.
Ideally many "bump in" volunteers will be present at the briefing, because knowledge of the process is key to allowing the JF19 event to start on time. History tells us  that lack of ‘bump in’ process knowledge by our volunteers during the"bump in" is the cause of many delays.
Participants from the other volunteer groups (RC Attadale, E-Club, WBSS, AxSHS)  are welcome:  they each can pass the key messages to their teams. Please pass this invitation to your volunteers.
AxR Members are asked to share this info with their partners.
1. Duty of care.
2. Personal Logistics on the day: some details.
3. Briefing: “ good public engagement ".
Those not involved in ‘bump in’  can then leave.
4. "Bump In” plan and discussion.

Our event chair, Kenn Williams, has been reported in the Fremantle Herald newspaper saying "if you thought that last years JacFest was fantastic, then be prepared for an even bigger and better event this year".  Over 600 hours of volunteer time go into the festival each year, culminating in as many as 15 community groups helping out on the day.  We have used all the media platforms to promote the event with Kenn even appearing on 'today tonight' as part of their story about the beautiful Jacarandas in full bloom.
Liz Palmer reminded members that the Christmas Party was scheduled for Sunday 8 December at Heathcote, and to please invite guests along as we need a minimum of 40 people to attend.
Kenn Williams led a series of short reports from key leaders at the upcoming Rotary Jacaranda Festival, and no doubt we’ll hear more after the event, but retired civil engineer and newest Rotarian Cecil Aaron was in awe of the anticipated military precision of the bump-in expected from 6am Saturday.
Ian Fairnie advised that our RYE Connor Ovens is off to Willich (pronounced Vilich), in Germany.  He will be hosted by the Rotary Club of Willich, which was founded on March 30, 2005.  Paul Neuhäuser took up his presidency of the Rotary Club of Willich on July 1, 2019.

The Rotary Club of Willich website translation indicated the Club is currently involved in the following projects:
Willich is a town in the district of Viersen, in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is located near the city of Düsseldorf, about 30 kilometres from the border with the Netherlands.   Many international companies, especially from the Far East, have their European or German headquarters in the town.
Willich was founded in 1970 out of the formerly independent villages of Willich, Anrath, Schiefbahn and Neersen, although the villages are much older. Anrath was mentioned for the first time in 1010, Willich in 1245, Neersen in 1262 and Schiefbahn in 1420.
The villages belonged to the Electorate of Cologne until the French Revolutionary Wars when they were occupied and annexed by France in 1794. At the end of the Napoleonic Wars in 1815 the villages fell to the Kingdom of Prussia.
In 1908 Stahlwerk Becker (a steel mill) was built and up to its closing in 1932 was one of the largest employers in Willich. Under a new owner, the mill was reopened in 1934 and was used to manufacture military supplies. The factory was finally closed in 1945 and the grounds were converted to a military base for the British Armed Forces.
The British Army had two units of soldiers stationed in Willich for more than 40 years, both belonged to the Royal Engineers. In 1992 the camp was closed and the group disbanded, but a reunion in 2012 saw 200 joining in the complete weekend.
